Disposal to landfill:

All of the metals that were held were in unopened sealed glass ampoules with an outer plastic container.

The actual mass of metal in these packages is considered low enough for general disposal to landfill after suitable additional packaging.



The outer plastic containers were double bagged separately. All bags were then placed into a plastic container, then sealed. This was then placed in a heavy duty cardboard box, sealed
and disposed of to general waste.
